 I bought a set of used S2 rear hubs from someone on this list. I plan  to do 
the S2 rear hub with the S4/S6 caliper and S8 carrier and new beetle rear  
vented rotors. If you have RS2 front brackets just get the urs4 hubs some used  
993 Big Reds/Blacks and I think there are a few different rotors out there 
that  will work. I had to shim the calipers a little less than an eighth inch but 
 other than that they seem like they'll work great.

Elijah,  does that mean you're gonna go with the localish Impex rear
hub that Peter  mentioned?  I just read your S2forum post about getting
some rear hubs  shipped over.

I think there's a guy I know with an extra set of front  urS6 hubs, and
I'll try to get those.  Actually, does anyone know if a  200q20v hub
would work?  I might have access to a pair of  those.

So I guess the relationship between the wheel bearing and the  G60
mount are the same between Scars and CQ/S2's?

Is there an oem  rotor that lines up correctly with a 996 caliper on an
RS2 bracket if I use  an urScar hub?  It sounds like euro A8 works with
the S2 hub.   Can or must the bracket be shimmed to center the caliper?

What I'm  looking for is to combine the less expensive DIY big brake
solutions that  use the RS2 brackets, since I have those, and some
urScar hubs that I might  have access to.  I can get some used Porsche
calipers and try to keep  the cost down.
